Hot news night?

TextTextRon Fineman's screen grab caught Hal Fishman opening a recent KTLA "News at 10" show with his coat on (left), then coming back from a break coatless (right). The odd thing, though, is that five minutes later, the coat was back on. Who knew Hal was so finicky about his look?

Fineman also credits Channel 4's Gordon Tokamatsu for pointing out that Michael Jackson was being, well, not fully truthful when he claimed recently that his children were born in Santa Maria. Tokamatsu noted on the air that they were actually born in L.A. and Beverly Hills.
